    Thumbs down Simple image float / text position question

    So I have two paragraphs, which are to the left of an image that is floating to the right. The image is taller than the two paragraphs. I then have another paragraph, which I want to start below the image, not to the left of it. How do I move this paragraph down, I do not want to just a bunch of breaks or anything like that because I need the text to be below it regardless of browser font size. All of this is within a content div. Is there a simple way to accomplish this?

    Hello bahjayjay,
    Add a clear:both; to the paragraph you want below the image.
    Here's an example -
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    <title>Untitled Document</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    html, body {
    	font: 14px "Comic Sans MS";
    	background: #FC6;
    }
    * {
    	margin: 0;
    	padding: 0;
    	border: none;
    }
    #container {
    	width: 800px;
    	margin: 30px auto;
    	background: #999;
    	overflow: auto;
    }
    #myPic {
    	float: right;
    }
    .new {
    	clear: both;
    }
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>
        <div id="container">
        <img src="7W9C7658 new gas stationsm.jpg" alt="afd" width="200" height="433" id="myPic" />
        
                <p>
